Valentine

Happy Friday folks. Hope all is well with you and yours. Hi to Lauren, thanks for joining my blog, I shall be over to yours later to see what you are up to.
I am being impatient whilst waiting for my new mobile phone to arrive. Having got totally fed up with my current one that keeps crashing on me, I have ordered the i-phone and am joining my son, daughter and daughter-in-law as they all have one too. The door bell has gone twice already today so I am hoping it will be third time lucky.
I am posting my Valentine card today, which actually is card no:2 for my hubby. I made him one way back at the beginning of January but having looked at it again I am not so happy with it. So here is the one I have been working on. The photograph does not do the colours justice, but I have used red and grey with black and white. The distressed heart background is another from a CD by Papercraft World and I have edged it with silver stickles. The grey, mottled centre mount has been edged with a Martha Stewart punch and a matching one used for the two corners. The heart and key charms are silver and I have used a variety of hearts punched or cut on the Cricut.
I am entering this for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge - http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/2010/02/challenge-99-in-name-of-love.html
This will be my second entry to a challenge, so lets see how this one goes.
I must say a big thankyou to everyone on Craftbubble who have sent me such lovely messages about my work. Thanks girls they have really made me feel good (much needed this week with Mum in hospital).
Yey my phone has just arrived so I need to go and set it up. Well I might get on here again over the weekend - we'll see, if not have a great saturday and sunday to you all. Bxx
